: I HAVE HEARD OF THIS FINGERING METHOD, BUT CAN'T FIND THE BOOK?? SUGGESTIONS AS TO SOURCE-THANX!!! SIMANTLE---SEMANTLE---SAMANTLE????
Be aware that there are different editions of New Method For The Double Bass, in which the fingering assignments are different. The edition demanded by the chairman of the faculty at Manhattan School of Music is the one edited by Lucas Drew. It makes a whole lot more sense to me than the one with fingering by Stuart (?) Sankey, and it is preferred by the top NYC orch bassists that I have had as teachers. Sorry, Stu. The publisher is Carl Fischer. However, if you have a teacher with an opinion on it, I'd go with the teacher.
